    Britain Is No Place for the White, Working-Class Male

    London Telegraph, January 14, 2010

    John Denham is one of the more impressive members of a largely undistinguished Cabinet, and his speech yesterday on race and discrimination was characteristically thoughtful, if disingenuous. Mr Denham is the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, head of a department whose very title signifies the multiculturalist patchwork the country has become. The word “communities” is often used as a euphemistic shorthand for ethnic minorities, on whose advancement the Government has concentrated in recent years. So successfully has it done so, said Mr Denham, that “being black or Asian no longer means being automatically disadvantaged”. He effectively declared the war on racism over, and claimed it was Labour that won it.

    We are not convinced that disadvantage was ever “automatic”; many people from ethnic minorities were held back not simply by discrimination, but because they were, by and large, less well-off and poorly educated. Mr Denham traces the improvements to the Race Relations Amendment Act introduced in 2000, after Sir William Macpherson’s inquiry into the murder of Stephen Lawrence. But the truth is that things have been getting better for 30 years or more, as a tolerant country has come to terms with being more racially diverse than it once was. As Trevor Phillips, the chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, has observed: “Britain is by far the best place to live in Europe if you are not white.”

    The problem is that if you are white—and working-class and male—Britain is not necessarily such a pleasant land. Whereas ethnic minorities, especially those who have arrived relatively recently, tend to have high aspirations, stable homes and make great sacrifices to ensure the best education for their children, the same culture does not pervade white working-class families. Their children, particularly the boys, have for many years been out-performed at school by virtually every other social group, and the decline in heavy industrial jobs that once offered a livelihood to young men with no qualifications has compounded their disadvantages.

    It is impossible, however, not to take a cynical view of Mr Denham’s somewhat belated recognition of the parlous position of this group. These are the traditional supporters of Labour’s heartland, the “core vote” that Gordon Brown is desperate to retain, who feel badly let down by the Government and are turning to the BNP.

    It will rank as one of the greatest stains on his premiership that such extremists were able to gain an electoral foothold in our country. For all Mr Denham’s self-congratulation, that is the true legacy of Labour’s years in power.

    I feel that people are too harsh to working class people today.

    I mean many of us can't work since many immigrants stole our jobs, for that you should blame the government. And blame them for cutting many jobs making more people redundant.

    And the myths that working class people are all scroungers is just stupid, we're not all like that. And were not all chavs either, in fact non-chav working class people are the majority.

    And besides look at history, it's our class that has done most of the dangerous jobs and during war we were the ones who did the fighting whilst the higher-class Officers watched safetly from the back.

    Why am I not surprised that she said that?
    They are the ones suffering the worse, their matriculation rate has plummeted and they are academically being outperformed by working class ethnic minorities. They are also the ones who cannot afford to escape with white flight. Also their jobs are the ones taken by immigrants.
    It is true what the article said about the working class being instrumental in Britain. Many of them were sent here and helped forge my nation.
    Talk of class is a great way to divide our folk

    I think it was criminal to get rid of the heavy industries, I think we should bring the Heavy Industries back and get unemployed people working in the factories, Hitler did it in the early '30s and unemployment in Germany fell drastically.

    How are the white working class supposed to have high aspirations when lesser skilled minorities are hired for less pay? When am I going to read an article that doesn't demonize white Britons and put minorities in the highest light possible?

    If the BNP is a stain, then Labour is a huge parasitical undulating puss jewel that continues to incinerate any feeling of pride in nationhood.

    Underclass

    Our urban underclass has been created over the last thirty years or so as a result of elite views and state policy. Although they may display a certain bravado, in fact our underclass are actually the sections of the working-class which have lost confidence in themselves and become dependent on a multi-culti and overarching state. They often have little knowledge about their own family or national traditions. It's noticeable that there are a lot more of them in areas where there is more state control and higher immigrant numbers. I see them as victims of liberal elite policies which show a total loss of confidence in our traditions and civilisation. Their own ancestors of fifty years ago would have been horrified, just as working-class people who haven't become 'underclass' are.

    The sad thing is that this is exactly the kind of fact liberals will jump on as evidence that race is just a social construct, completely ignoring the fact that it is their social engineering which is responsible for this. Just like they do in regards to gender with any mention of girls outperforming boys or, again racially, blacks outperforming whites (rare, for sure).

    Exactly. The leftists have engineered matters to suit and fit their own opinions and world view.
